Square bullet Activities

  • Request an artist in residence from the State Council on the Arts. Artists may be in any field; for example:

    a woodcutter and printer taught students methods of making cuts and prints; brought supplies to set up the project and left some to continue the project throughout the year

    a modern and jazz dancer held classes daily with all grades; students learned to express themselves in dance and put on a dance for the village

    a vocalist worked with elementary students during the day; taught new songs and made up some Yupik songs; gave a concert to the village; held practice after school for high school students; helped them with vocal drills.

Square bullet Resources

  • Alaska State Council on the Arts, Artist-in-Residence program
  • Johnson O'Malley Funds (artist brings most of his or her own supplies)

Variations

  • Teachers might develop enough expertise to continue the project.
